Stress in cats and dogs
Large or small, whether living in a city apartment or a large house with a garden, all dogs are under stress - just like humans. The only thing is, they don't all express it the same way. However, there are a few signals that can tell you that your dog is stressed:
- His heart is beating fast (at least faster than usual)
- He has dilated pupils and spiky hairs (he doesn't necessarily want to fight, he may just be anxious)
- He trembles, gasps and saliva in abundance
- He barks excessively
- He changes his behavior - he sleeps less, drinks or eats more or less ...
- He neglects his hygiene
- He has diarrhea or is vomiting for no apparent reason
- He tends to hide or stay in a corner.
If you notice any of these symptoms, your dog may be stressed. However, it can also be a disease. So don't hesitate to see a vet for a diagnosis.
Good to know: There can be many causes of stress in a dog. The first is obviously a change in his daily habits. Besides a change in lifestyle, it can be a strident noise, unusual smells, a car trip, a thunderstorm, boredom, lack of activity, pain, etc.
On the other hand, your dog may also be naturally stressed or have experienced trauma at a younger age.
The cat is often less expressive than the dog when under stress, but again there are certain behaviors that can put you on the trail. Indeed, in cats, stress acts directly on their bladder. This may cause your baby to be less clean than usual and to have urinary tract infections. There are other things that can guide you as well. For example: increased immobility, more intense claws, unusual aggressiveness, repeated meowing, loss of appetite or bulimia.
Here again, the sources of stress in cats are multiple:
- inactivity or overactivity
- the arrival of a new animal with whom he must share his territory
- a change of habit
- a change of environment (moves, works, sensory disturbances)
- abuse of punishment
- a separation from the master.
Be careful, if the cat's stress is not treated and prolonged, the production of cortisol in its body will accelerate, which may weaken its immune defenses in the long term. An anti-anxiety medication for cats may then be necessary.
Prevention and treatment of stress in cats and dogs
To prevent your cat or dog from feeling too stressed, it is important to provide them with a stable and balanced living environment. Repeated moves or the arrival of new animals in the home are therefore additional stressors.
However, if these events occur, you should not help but experience them. Also, don't hesitate to offer them regular activities (play with them or take them out). This then allows them to avoid boredom.
If your dog or cat remains stressed despite all your attentions, it is also possible to provide him with food supplements. These will allow him to be more relaxed on a daily basis, or to face the most difficult tests more calmly. This is particularly the case with Canirelax, a stress reliever for cats and dogs, which helps your pet to feel good.
